Manage Students

The Manage feature allows you to summarize students by filters in order to bulk add labels, send emails, and more. This view can be altered by Saving a Search and making this your default search.

One drawback is downloading student lists. Unfortunately, you cannot (at this time) download the summarized students to an excel for other purposes. Instead, you'll need to use Analytics to attempt this.

Using Manage, you can also find students to learn more about their Activity in Handshake or View as a Student to show a student what their profile looks like as an employer or support them in creating Job filters during your appointments.

Be sure to use 'Not Labels' to keep Alumni out of your student searches, as needed.

  • Leave user request space for approve/decline by team.

Note to Consider:

When using Handshake Analytics, the default is for students who are considered Active.  Please make sure your reports reflect your intention and include or exclude Active/Inactive students as needed.
